WORSHIP ministry

Rocky Gillmore, Worship Pastor
rocky.gillmore@crossroadstw.org

Rocky surrendered to full-time ministry in 1995, and he has been a part of the Crossroads staff since October 1995.  Prior to joining Crossroads, Rocky worked in the corporate world as a CPA and attended a large church in the Houston area where he was deeply involved in the music ministry. On several occasions, Crossroads invited Rocky to lead music for special occasions. God placed a love in his heart for the church even before he surrendered to full-time service. Through prayer and seeking God's will for his family, it was obvious that Crossroads was where God wanted Rocky and his family to plant their lives and do Kingdom work.

Rocky earned a B.B.A. in Accounting from West Texas State University.  Rocky is married to Sue, and they have two daughters and a son.

Our new church facility, along with our tradition of transparent connection, points to a bright future for Christ here in The Woodlands area.

Stan received a B.A. in Church Recreation from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO and a M.R.E. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.

STUDENT ministry

Chris Willingham, Student Ministry Pastor 
chris.willingham@crossroadstw.org 

Chris is a native Texan with a passion for youth and their families. He came on staff at Crossroads in July of 2009. Chris has also served as the youth pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church of the Woodlands and Community Baptist Church in the Woodlands. Chris received his BSE from East Texas Baptist University in 1995 and used his love of teaching to minister to youth while working in the public schools. He is currently attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary working towards a Master's of Christian Education.

When not working with teens and their families, Chris loves to hang out with his family. He has been married to Marie for 15 years and has 2 boys, Ryan and Josh. He also loves all things "history" and is a self proclaimed "tech junkie". Chris' dream for the students of Crossroads is that they would become fully developed disciples of Christ with a passion for the lost and love for other believers. In the spirit of Romans 12:2 , his prayer is that students would no longer conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of their minds. Then they will be able to test and approve God's good, pleasing and perfect will.
